This unit requires you to work effectively as an individual scholar, as well as collaboratively with your group. You are co-editing and contributing a chapter to an upcoming title in your publishing house’s “Companion to…” series. With your co-editors, you will digitally publish your new title.

Each chapter contributor (or, group member) will focus on a poem by the selected poet, and will write a chapter focusing on a theme or topic in that poem. For example, one might write about the importance of singing and song in Langston Hughes’ “I, Too.”
